About Our Rice

Have you ever wondered where Water Maid® and River® Rice come from?

Nearly 85% of the rice consumed in the U.S. is grown by farmers in Arkansas, California, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri and Texas.

U.S. farmers each year produce around 19 billion pounds of high-quality varieties of short, medium and long grain rice, as well as specialty rices including jasmine, basmati, arborio, red aromatic and black japonica, among others.

Our rice packaged as River whole grain brown rice, and River or Water Maid medium grain white rice are "Grown in the USA".
